ALL INFORMATION ON THIS PAGE IS THE MOST CURRENT AVAILABLE.
Trail conditions can vary depending on the time of year, the impact of rain and storms, construction and maintenance and other occurrences. Please be aware that trail closures may change from day to day without notice, based on current and predicted weather conditions. During winter storm season, high waters can make creek crossings hazardous, so plan your outing accordingly. Hazardous conditions occasionally elicit FULL preserve closures. Please check individual preserve pages for a status update on each preserve. Trail closures are strictly enforced.
Bicyclists and equestrians: To prevent trail damage, please avoid riding dirt trails while it is raining or right after larger storms where there is a lot of standing/running water on the trails.
2023 Storm Damage Repair
We appreciate everyone’s patience as Midpen staff work to reopen temporarily closed areas by repairing extensive recent storm damage. Some hard-hit areas will take time. We are prioritizing work to reopen public and emergency access as soon as possible.
The vast majority of Midpen’s 250-miles of trail remain open daily free of charge. We encourage you to visit openspace.org/preserves to explore the many miles of currently open trails while you may be waiting for other areas to be safely repaired and reopened.
